ARSENAL players' faces were as red as their shirts after a 10-2 tanking by Bayern Munich but that embarrassment will pale into significance if they fail to beat Lincoln.

After two 5-1 batterings by the Germans Arsene Wenger's men will have to put away the non-league giantkillers without a scare and book an FA Cup semi-final place.

Lincoln have performed heroics to reach this stage – beating Burnley away – but this is a different level and they'll enjoy the day out and try to avoid a hammering.

Arsenal actually played well and could have been three up against Bayern before being reduced to 10 men and conceding a penalty.

After that they crumbled but were facing Robben and Lewandowski as opposed to Rhead and Sparrow.

The Gunners, whose boss is 1-4 at bet365 to leave the club at the end of the season, are no bigger than 1-11 with Marathonbet.

As usual I'm trying to find value and that means doubling your money. Wenger's men should win by at least three – they beat Sutton 2-0 away in the last round on a plastic pitch – so consider Arsenal -3AH at 9-10 with Winner or be braver and go with the straight -3 at 7-5 with betfair.

Other bets to consider are Arsenal to win to nil or to win both halves.

In midweek Barcelona were 655-1 to qualify as the match with PSG went into injury time – anyone who backed that may splash out on Lincoln at 50-1 with BetStars while a repeat of their 1-0 success at Turf Moor pays 150-1 at betfair.

Today's other cup clash sees Man City head for Middlesbrough after a lacklustre 0-0 draw at home to Stoke in midweek.

Boro have failed to score in four Premier League outings but did bag a 1-1 draw at the Etihad earlier in the season. While they can't hit the net they can defend – conceding just 20 – so City could again find it tough to break down opponents.

With City no bigger than 4-9 best bet here could be under 2.5 goals at 23-20 with McBookie. Another no scorer pays 12-1 at William Hill and Ladbrokes. A 1-0 City win pays 13-2 at McBookie.

Tomorrow Spurs should see off Millwall with the minimum of fuss and are a best 2-11 at William Hill. Best bets are Harry Kane to score first at 9-4 with Betway or net 2+ at 2-1 with William Hill. The England striker has netted eight in four games.

There are three games in the Premier League and Everton stand out at 7-10 with Coral to beat West Brom. Another striker in great form is Romelu Lukaku who has six in four and has hit the target in his last five at Goodison.

Lukaku is 3-1 at William Hill to break the deadlock and evens with the same firm to net at any time. Kane to score 2+ and Lukaku to score pays 5-1 at Hills.

In the Champiionship the best bets are Leeds at evens with William Hill at home to QPR and Cardiff at 17-20 with the same firm at home to Nottm Forest.

Back on-form Fleetwood – four wins in a row and unbeaten in 18 – at home to a Bolton side whose firm has dipped since selling Zach Clough and Sammy Ameobi in January. They are winless in four and Fleetwood look good at 11-8 with Skybet.

Bets to Consider

Arsenal -3AH

Middlesbrough v Man City under 2.5 goals

Kane to score 2+ (Sunday)

Lukaku to score
